Krav Maga was originally developed for the military sector. This is the reason why standard Krav Maga training is addressed to as “Civilian.” Civilian Krav Maga training is practically divided into three ‘sub-sectors’ referred to as adult Krav Maga (or just ‘civilian’), Women’s Krav Maga and Junior Krav Maga. Krav Maga training with IKMF for civilians is available on many levels all over the world. It can be learned as a hobby once or twice a week and still, the outcome is extremely effective. This is due to the fact that the most evident advantage kravmaga training is known for is how quickly and easily one acquires self defense knowledge. Krav Maga training was built up and based upon natural responses and reflexes is accessible to anyone and provides the best self-defense ability possible. Most often, what starts out as ‘casual’ Krav Maga training in the afternoon becomes a true passion for the trainee and IKMF offers many additional civilian training frameworks. Similar to the belt system common in Martial arts IKMF also manages a grading system. This is also divided to three main groups: Practitioner levels (or just ‘P’ levels), Graduate levels (‘G’ levels) and Expert Levels (‘E’ levels). Individuals who train Krav Maga may advance in rank through IKMF’s testing system as high up as they want in proportion to how much krav Maga training time they have invested. G levels are usually veteran Krav Maga trainees and very often have also been qualified as instructors. Krav Maga Experts are few, as these are highly professional instructors who have dedicated their lives and career to Krav Maga training and instructing. IKMF’s Global Instructor Team (GIT) are all high ranking Experts and well appreciated instructors. Civilian Krav Maga training syllabus is compiled of 5 P levels and 5 G levels. Each element of the curriculum is based upon real life scenarios describing real life attacks. Every P or G level includes various self defense solutions and counterattacks that derive from such scenarios. Through Krav Maga training, the student practices these scenarios according to respective rank. As one advances in grading the scenarios upon which the syllabus is built become increasingly dangerous and complex, and self defense solutions are provided accordingly. IKMF places very important emphasize on updating the syllabus as often as needed so it is always contemporary and effective. In addition, IKMF offers extra curriculum qualifications for Krav Maga trainees such as seminars & short workshops that focus on specific defenses, techniques and much more. Now that you know a bit more about IKMF and Civilian Krav Maga we welcome you to join our forever growing family and train Krav Maga.

Children’s Krav Maga mostly referred to as “Kid’s Krav Maga was developed by IKMF (International Krav Maga Federation) as part of the Krav Maga self-dense solutions created fir the various civilian sectors” Kids Krav Maga self-defense course enables children, in a relative short period of time become aware of everyday safety issues and to learn self defense techniques carefully adapted to match their respective age, physical and mental abilities. Through a carefully designed Krav Maga training program and games/fun based activities; children are taught how to recognize common threats like bullies and kidnappers, and even dangerous situation like fire and natural disasters like earthquakes.
The main concept behind 3rd party protection is, quite obviously, to protect someone other than yourself. Cases can be placed on a scale from natural (like a mother protecting her child), through a responsibility-based protection (a teacher or commander), to professionals (a Bodyguard protecting his client).
Third party protection Krav Maga is needed because of its difference from the basic self defense situation: Physically, one must use the technique to protect someone else and not himself, by taking two physical actions; the first is removing the 3rd party from danger’s way. The second is parrying the attacks for the 3rd party. Emotionally, one must make a switch in his mind; “switch off” his sense of self-preservation, and “switch on” his sense of duty (natural, responsibility based or professional).
Krav Maga makes a person mentally ready for situations like these and gives him tools to react in the right way in the right state of mind in these times.
